Event Description

In a concert that traverses sex, sensuality, the senses and more, Luminescence Chamber Singers explore our corporeal form with Dan Walker’s Of The Body.

From Andreas Vesalius’ groundbreaking De Humani Corporis Fabrica to the drawings of Da Vinci and Dürer, the 16th century heralded a new fascination with the human figure. Human dissection transformed our understanding of anatomy, and the body became the subject of scientific and artistic fixation.

In the spirit of Buxtehude’s much-loved Membra Jesu Nostri, each movement of Dan Walker’s new song cycle Of The Body is devoted to an anatomical part: the eyes, the hands, the mouth, the feet, the blood, and finally, the heart.

In a concert that traverses sex, sensuality, the senses, and more, Luminescence Chamber Singers explore our relationship to our corporeal form; our flesh and blood.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through Music Australia and Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body.
